Compaq 73xx

Homepage: Specification


Compaq 73xx

Mark: Good

The predecessor to the 7400, seriously outdated by now but works like a charm with older OS/2 versions and in fact quite reasonably with ecs1.2 if you have enough memory.

For accelerated display you also need the S3 Aurora driver released by Compaq or a slightly updated one that was available from S3, the SNAP final not accelerated but if you can find a older version of SNAP there is an acelerated version in them that was later dropped from the distribution for reasons unknown (worked well enough). Note that the S3 installer is buggy and you will need to edit the svga ini file to change the resolution frequency to 65 for the driver to work correctly, the same problem plagues the 7400/7800 line.
